  1. I love this move, Mahle is a lot better than his perception. I preferred him to Montas and think he was about even with Castillo. Absolutely awesome deadline so far, I hope they're not done. Go get Joc Pederson and one more reliever.
  2. They kind of have to go for it with only having Correa for one year, but apart from that I feel like this team has a few too many needs to address in one deadline. I like the core and think we have the building blocks for a good team. But I really think you need an impact starter, another starter plus 2 impact relievers. So short of adding one of Castillo/Montas/Mahle + Noah-ish kind of SP + Jorge Lopez and Daniel Bard I just don't it's enough. And if you get all 4 are you losing 5 of our top 20 prospects or more? I'm not opposed to it but it would be a pretty big diversion from the Twins Way so I am fully expecting to get Lou Trivino and whoever is the spiritual ancestor to Ricky Nolasco.
  3. I think the author lays out why he might be a good arm (higher K/9 and lower FIP than Duran). He seems like a really good buy low target for me. And isn't our 1B, when Polanco is healthy, leading MLB in AVG & OBP?
  4. I recently found an archived email folder which had me and a few buddies discussing the NFL draft from 2009-2010-ish. We were debating about whether Jimmy Clausen, Ryan Mallet or Colt McCoy was the better NFL prospect. Unrelated yet sort of related.
  5. Exactly, I always say anything that happened before tomorrow is pointless. I say, we must move forward, not backward; upward, not forward; and always twirling, twirling, twirling towards freedom!
  6. Jared Camp for Johan Santana 12/13/99. The Marlins drafted Santana in the Rule V draft and immediately traded him to the Twins for Jared Camp.
  7. You say this on Jared Camp's birthday?? How rude! I'd also include the AJ trade that netted us Boof Bonser and those other 2 guys.
  8. I suppose a 27 year old could be a prospect but if that 27 year old is not yet on the 40 man roster I think that tells you the team themselves doesn't consider the player much of a prospect
  9. Mike Trout is inarguably the best player to put on a baseball uniform for the current generation. Fixed that for you. Also, love Buxton, favorite Non-Kirby Twin ever. But cmon.
  10. Well he only cleared the Mendoza line by 5 hits so be prepared to worry. Also the problem can be both!
  11. Fantasy baseball traditionally uses Wins/Saves/ERA/WHIP/K. Saves wouldn't matter when ranking Gray and Berrios. So 25% of that ranking is based on expected Wins and would obviously tell a whole lot less of a story than the pretty articulate article we all presumably just read.
  12. I hate it too but..... https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/irregardless
  13. I'm pretty surprised that anyone cares at all about Spring Training stats. I feel like every single year either the concerns from slow starters or the helium on someone knocking the stiches off the ball wind up largely looking really silly by April 30th.
  14. I just switched to AT&T from Hulu and really like it. $85 is ridiculous since we primarily watch baseball and the Wild and little else. But I have nothing better to do and the $4 million I saved by not drinking beer at bars in 2020 is burning a hole in my pocket.
  15. As usual in March hope springs eternal. So I'm expecting 190 IP, 3.25 and 1.10 ERA/WHIP with 200 strikeouts. Now as with most Minnesota sports fans there is that one part of your brain that refuses to be brainwashed and insists on trying to counterbalance the brainwashed part of your brain. So that part of my brain sees 100 IP with a sore something or other in there and a 4.50 ERA 1.50 WHIP. I hate that part of my brain and it hates me. So I'm still going with the hopeful projection.
